Health Benefits of Online Bingo

Online bingo provides the perfect entertainment for so many people all over the globe. The game is designed to be a fun but exciting way to engage with others with the aim of winning some real cash. While competitive, the game is also meant to be a social experience and many players play the game simply because they enjoy the social aspect that comes with it.

In addition to this there are some health benefits to playing the game and here at Lucky Cow Bingo, we have been looking into these benefits in a bit more detail. This is what we found:

Cognitive Capacity

Cognition relates to the various ways in which we acquire and process knowledge such as thought, experience and the use of the senses. A study by the psychology division at The University of Southampton measured memory capacity, mental speed and other cognitive processes and found that bingo players had more accuracy to these tests than non-bingo players.

Memory Stimulation

It has been proven that your memory centres are one of the first parts of your brain to be stimulated when you play the game of bingo. Bingo players quickly adapt to the game’s necessity to remember numbers as they are being called.

It may seem minimal but we guarantee that the more you play, the more your memory will improve even if this improvement is marginal. If you’re having trouble remembering where you put your keys then playing some online bingo might just be the answer!

Stress Relief

This is one of the more obvious reasons to some but is still worth mentioning. Due to the games simple structure, it appeals to so many different people as a way of unwinding after a long day. Many customers use online bingo as their way of taking a mental break and even if you are not suffering from any real stress, a few rounds of the game can prove a good distraction from any exterior influences that may be affecting you at that particular moment.

The Social Environment

As we mentioned above, a massive reason that some people play bingo isn’t primarily for the jackpots that can be won but also the social interaction with other people. Playing the game with like-minded players is a great way to make new friends and generally chill out.

Here at Lucky Cow Bingo, we place a real emphasis on community and a lot of our players have a sense of belonging when they play in our bingo lobby. Our safe, secure and welcoming environment really allows for our players to relax and engage with each other effectively.

Any Others?

These are just a few that have stood out to us but you may have some ideas of your own. As always, have fun and win big with us!

Getting More for Your Money in January!

The January blues can affect a lot of people and if you are a player that is looking to make some savings in January then fear not, as you can still enjoy a good variety of cost-effective bingo right here at Lucky Cow. We have plenty of great options for those looking to save a few pounds over the next couple of weeks.

Whether it’s free bingo or some of our great re-deposit bonuses, we’re certain that we have something for everyone and we have listed a few ideas below.

Free Bingo

Naturally, players want to save money after Christmas and our free bingo games are arguably the best way to achieve this. We offer a massive amount of free bingo games for both new and old players. If you are a new player then you can sign up and make one small deposit and in return we will grant you access to our free bingo room for 7 whole days! Every game is free and there is a £3 prize in every game. Great value!

Once you have used up your 7 day free bingo room allowance then you can still access free bingo in the main lobby and there are 2 hours of free games on offer every single day. There are real cash prizes available on these games so look out for the games with the most players as the higher the player count, the higher the jackpot.

Wheel of Slots

A lot of players forget to claim their spin on the Wheel of Slots and any time you make a deposit you will receive one spin of the wheel which can grant you free spins for some of our most popular slot games including Temple of ISIS, Fluffy Favourites and Shaman’s Dream. A small deposit can result in some big free spin rewards and all winnings from these spins will go straight to your balance meaning you can wager them on bingo or more slots if you wish.

Another great way to save money on Lucky Cow Bingo is to play some of the bigger jackpot games. This month we have the Balance Booster jackpot game with a £250 pot on offer and this will take place on the 15th January at 8pm.

About the Slot Games that you can win Free Spins on

Our newbie players get a chance to spin the wheel to win their free spins. There are three different slots that you can win these on, so today we’re telling you all about them. That way, you can keep your fingers crossed for the one that appeals to you most as the wheel spins!

Fluffy Favourites

This ever popular slot game is an excellent one to win some free spins on. The cute animals and rewarding reels are an amazing combination, so many of our players keep their fingers crossed for this one. There are free spins and even a bonus round within this game, making it much more exciting.

The premise of the game is spending a day at the beach with your stuffed animals. There’s a pastel theme going on and it’s a cohesive theme throughout. It’s also mobile optimised for your convenience, making it a dream to play on our mobile site. We also have our Fluffy Christmas promotion ongoing at the moment, which gives players the opportunity to win more spins on this game.

Temple of Isis

Go crawling through a long forgotten temple with this enticing slot game. It’s got a theme that might just remind you of Indiana Jones, as you follow in the footsteps of this famous explorer. There are free spins in this game, which you can unlock with three of the scatter symbols.

The five reels and three rows of this slot are littered with artifacts from the temple. It’s an exciting game that will transport you into a new world.

Shaman’s Dream

If you’re a fan of ancient cultures then Shaman’s Dream is the slot for you. This game is all about Native American culture and you’ll need to study at the feet of the Shaman to earn your jackpots. The symbols on the reels all fit into this theme, with eagles, feathers and spirit animals on this game.

If you’re lucky then you might just be able to unlock the free spins bonus round. This will transport you into another portion of the game where you’ll get to play for free and add more to your balance. There’s also a wild symbol within this game that makes it even easier for you to win big, as it takes the place of other symbols.

Any one of these slots will delight you if you get your hands on their free spins. Just make a deposit and spin the wheel to find out which one you’ll be playing on. Keep your fingers crossed to win the maximum of 500 spins from the reels! You can read the full terms and conditions of this and other offers on our site, so pop there first.

Online Bingo Chat Do’s and Don’ts

If you’ve been chatting in our online bingo rooms then you’ve probably been having a whale of a time. There are a few things that you should know about doing so, here are our do’s and don’ts.

Do: Use the Lingo

You’ll most likely notice that other roomies use a specific set of lingo. This can be used to make chatting more fun and easier to do. These are some of the most common ones that you’ll find:

  • WTG – Way to Go – Used to congratulate other players that win.
  • BRB – Be Right Back – If you’re popping off to do something for a few minutes then you can use this one.
  • G2G – Got to Go – If you’re going offline and want to say a quick bye to the other roomies then use this one.

There are loads of these terms in use around the bingo halls, both online and offline. Experiment with using them and find out if they make your bingo experience better.

Do: Be Nice to Other Players

Here at Lucky Cow Bingo, we like to make sure that all of our players are having a good time. That means our chat hosts watch over the chat rooms to ensure that’s what is happening. They’ll be picking out the roomies that are naughty and leaving the nice ones.

Just being polite to other roomies and our hosts will mean that you can continue to play. This ensures that you won’t have to be warned about this aspect of playing.

Don’t: Discuss Personal Information

We’re sure that all of our roomies are great but you have to remember that the internet can be a scary place. You don’t want someone to find out where you live, your password or your payment details. That’s why we ask that you don’t give out your personal information, as we want you to stay safe online.

Make sure you have a secure password that another roomie can’t guess. For example, if you use the name of a pet and then talk about them in the chat, another player could potentially gain access to your account. Just make sure you mix up your password with symbols and numbers to make it more secure.

Don’t: Be a Sore Loser

We want to create a positive atmosphere for players on our site, so we try to keep things happy and polite. This includes making sure that our players aren’t sore losers or harassing winners. It can be frustrating not to win in a room, but if you congratulate other winners and have a good time then it’s not so bad.

If you see any behaviour in our rooms that doesn’t follow the guidelines then just get in touch with a host and they’ll sort it out.
